I agree, but then I don't think it's rational to put a graphics API in the middle of the HTML spec.  (And actually, I'm kinda on the fence - other than OS-native controls, I'm not sure if rendering isn't de facto part of the spec anyway.  It's not like we could decide that <div> should have a default margin of 2ems or anything.  :)
